The West End Beautification and Trail Project is under way!

1000 feet of drip system is being installed at the main entrance to the Fairgrounds. The watering system has been made possible by a grant from Keep America Beautiful. Funding for trees has been donated by Milestown Community Improvement Incorporated and another private source. Thank you to Rob Pederson from Northern Landscape for partnering with us in this project.

Pollinator Garden:  Miles City Community Garden

Keep Miles City Beautiful received a pollinator garden from Keep America Beautiful through a donation from Dickinson's Witch Hazel.  We partnered with volunteers from the Miles City Community Garden to plant the garden.  The garden has been registered on the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge website:  To date 337,102 pollinator gardens have been registered on this site.  Special thanks to Scott and Jenette Denson and Jenny Sloan for preparing and planting the garden!
